Where Urology Care is Always #1!

Urology is a specialty field that deals
with the treatment of conditions and
maladies involving the male and female
urinary tract, as well as the male
reproductive organs.

People that specialize in Urology are

called Urologists; urologists are trained
to diagnose, detect and treat this group
of disorders and diseases.
Urologists treat conditions that include those
involving the kidneys, the ureters, the adrenal
glands, the bladder, and the urethra in males.
An urologist may also treat conditions of the
testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal
vesicles, prostate and penis.

Urology involves medical management of

conditions such as urinary tract infection and
prostate enlargement, as well as surgical
management of conditions such as bladder
cancer, prostate cancer, kidney stones and
stress incontinence when necessary.
When conditions such as cancer of the urinary
tract exist, urologists may need to work in team
with oncologists or radiotherapists.

Collaboration with nephrologists who deal with

kidney conditions, gynecologists who deal with
the female reproductive system and
endocrinologists who treat conditions of the
endocrine system and hormone disorders may
also be necessary.

Urologists may also collaborate with

physicians of pediatric surgery and colorectal
Urologists undergo post-graduate training for
five years, completing twelve months in
general surgery and thirty six months in clinical
urology. The remaining twelve months may be
spent training in general surgery, clinical
urology or a field that is relevant to urology.

Once a urology degree is obtained there are

additional specialist’s fields that may be
practiced. Urologist Phoenix Roscoe Nelson
MD offers compassionate, professional care
and treatment.
One such field is Endourology, which deals with
the closed manipulation of the urinary tract. The
field has grown to now include minimally invasive
surgical procedures. Procedures are carried out
using endoscopes inserted into the urinary tract
and examples include prostate surgery, stone
removal surgery and simple urethral or ureteral

Urologic oncology treats genitourinary

malignancies such as cancers of the kidney,
adrenal glands, prostate, bladder, ureters,
testicles or penis.
Neurology involves management of conditions that
affect the nervous control of the genitourinary system
or abnormal urination. Some examples of
neurological conditions that may lead to these
conditions include Parkinson’s disease, multiple
sclerosis, and stroke and spinal cord injuries.

Pediatric urology involves the correction of

genitourinary problems arising in children such as
undescended testes or cryptorchidism and
vesicoureteral reflux.
